Let The Hacking Begin…

So, someone’s already hacked the Apple TV to add Quicktime plugin Perian (an advantage, I suggested, of the Mac Mini). This uses the fact the the aTV runs Quicktime, something contradicted on Rogue Amoeba under surprise #4, but which surely must be the case. Unfortunatly the hack involves some dismantling, and isn’t terribly usable yet.

The iLounge review suggests there’s another limitation: no streaming of photos. Meanwhile, at Gizmodo, someone’s stuck at 120GB drive in their unit.
